FHTC completes educational renovations in first phase of Inspiring Wranglers Campaign

FHTC's newly renovated commons area includes space to study or relax.Students returning to Flint Hills Technical College’s main campus for the spring semester are enjoying newly remodeled spaces and labs. The renovations were made possible by the completion of the Inspiring Wranglers campaign that kicked off in 2018. The more than $2 million campaign wrapped up in 2020 with the goal of providing students enhanced educational facilities, helping students achieve success.

“We are excited to have our students utilizing the newly renovated spaces within Phase 1 of the project,” said Mike Crouch, FHTC Vice President of Advancement. “The renovation would not be possible without the support of our many donors and we are extremely appreciative of their generosity to ensure that FHTC students have top of the line learning environments.”

Phase 1 began in August 2020 and the newly finished spaces include a state-of-the-art chemistry lab and upgraded student commons area with student study spaces and a dedicated luncheon area. Hospitality and culinary arts area renovations involved two kitchen labs – a senior teaching kitchen and a demonstration kitchen. Both labs were reconfigured with an optimized layout and outfitted with new equipment and technology. Construction on Phase 2 has begun and is slated to be completed by late spring 2021.

The recent renovations follows several other lab and technology improvements advanced by efforts from the FHTC Foundation, including the dental assisting clinic lab, welding technology building expansion, and an on-campus dental hygiene clinic.
